Agent says…

No.

And so it begins.  πŸ™‚

It’s not my first rejection, but it is the first one I received for my young adult series. The agent who read my book (hey she read it!) said the suspense was strong but she found the world hard to get into. I guess getting the first rejection for your book is kind of a rite of passage. But oh well, it never feels great. Still… I’m going to keep the email. Someone took the time to read my manuscript. Even though she’s not going to represent me, I passed a little piece of myself on to someone else and well, that’s the point! πŸ™‚ To communicate and be heard.

    😦 I am sorry that the agent said no…I have had a few of those myself and it seems a little harder when they have taken the time to request it and then still say no…I think it just means she/he isn't the right agent for you. Chin up, it's a great story and someone wills see it for what it is πŸ™‚

    The fact that she read it and gave feedback is tremendous.I had a rejection with great feedback. I made the changes the rejecting agent suggested and along with a few other great ones from my beta readers, (like you!), it got accepted by another agent.Don't give up!
